Drinking Glasses

Keep your glasses simple and sturdy for a timeless tablescape. Go for a more minimal design (like these inspired by French jelly jars) instead of bright colors and patterns to use during multiple occasions.

Sturdy Flatware

If you're looking for registry essentials to create a more casual tablescape, go for stainless steel flatware. Unlike sterling silver, which is great for elegant dinners, this material is dishwasher-safe. It's appropriate enough to use in some formal settings like holiday occasions, if you want to skip the silver.
